These are the actual words one of my business coaching clients said. Now, she was partially joking, but I work with my clients around aspects of their business and their life! You may think to yourself, “that’s why she’s in financial distress, she’s paying for a coach!” She’s investing in herself. She’s tried to go it alone and it’s not worked. First, we put her on a budget after creating a business and marketing plan.
We, then got her to start keeping track of her monthly expenses-getting in the mindset of where her money goes. She loves movies and eating out with friends. It’s important not to cut out her entertainment entirely,like a crash diet that is a temporary fix, if it works at all,it doesn’t work long-term. She goes to matinees (less expensive) and has friends over to watch a movie on Netflix or Amazon, then,they have a potluck dinner-everyone brings a dish. She’s saving as well as her friends! It’s a win-win!
Once she got her finances in check, we were able to tackle other less tangible aspects of her life.
